Don't say that -- part 1

From the Atlantic Wire: An A-to-Z Guide to 2012's Worst Words. Actually, I literally cringed over some of these, such as ping, but some I didn't get. I guess we have to find another way to describe twee hipsters now.

Look for the list of words to be banished from the Queen's English, from Lake Superior State University, sometime next week (see last year's post about it).

I use words & expressions that hardly anybody uses anymore:

Hep. (As in, "What's this that you're all so hepped (excited) about?")

Dead duck.

Sitting duck.

Pally. ( slang on the word "Pal." Friend, chum, sometimes used sarcasticly)

Dig. ( As in " I really dig the Beatles!)

I grew up watching a LOT of old movies from the 30's and 40's. Still love 'em!
